Jim Bunkers, owner of Archie Bunkers Place on West Maple Street, recently started a new business at 200 West Main Street in Cherokee, and the other place, which he calls "The Other Place," had their Grand Opening on Thursday and Friday, February 15 and 16.

The new business is located in the building owned by Mandy Feltner,and most recently housed The Bullseye Lounge, and prior to that, The Brownstone.

The Other Place will be a restaurant and bar, and will be open seven days a week, from 11 a.m. until 2 a.m., serving lunch and dinner (or dinner and supper, depending upon where you were raised).

The Other Place will be managed by Sandy Napier. Napier is a native of the small town of Stonewall, Oklahoma, (Napier's graduating class had six members), but she has spent a lot of time in Cherokee over the years, as her grandmother, Verna Jenness, lived and worked here.

The Grand Opening featured an All You Can Eat Buffet from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., and again from 4-8 p.m. Cost for the buffet was $9 (first drink included) on both Thursday the 15th and Friday the 16th. The food included taverns, hot dogs, broasted chicken and potatoes, chili, broccoli and cheese, potato salad, and a salad bar.

There was a disc jockey for patrons' listening and dancing pleasure on Thursday the15th and Saturday the 17th, from 9 p.m.-1 a.m., and Friday the 16th was Karaoke Night, again from 9 p.m.-1 a.m. Therewere also door prizes Friday night.

The Other Place's normal fare will be sandwiches and other foods off a menu, and a special of the day each day. Becky Pratt will be the cook.

In addition to great food and drinks, there is a large screen TV , on which customers can enjoy watching NASCAR, football, and other sporting events, as well as pool and Foosball tables. The second floor will be used by DJs or bands, and tables can be moved on the main floor to create a small dance floor.

By the way, in case you were wondering, Archie Bunkers Place will still be open, too.
